    Episode 23 - Elizabeth Piper S.

    Growing up in Michigan watching locally produced horror films, Elizabeth Piper S. was always fascinated by how a simple tool such as ketchup could be used to create fake blood used for various horror scenes. Today, she is a professional SFX/makeup artist in NYC, and while she isn't using ketchup to create fake blood, she is putting her knowledge and talent to good use, both in big commercial productions and countless indie features.

    For this week's episode, Anthony spoke with Elizabeth about moving to NYC to pursue her career, her indie film company Into the Labyrinth and the various films she's produced, her cinematic blood line Cine Blood: Type O, and more!
